Friends:Deceiving Sensuality: Empty of Happiness! The Blessed Buddha explained all the phenomena of existence as a pain:
Whoever delights in forms, feelings, perceptions, mental constructions,
and in whatever kind of consciousness, also delights in plain Suffering!
Whoever delights in Suffering, cannot ever be freed from Suffering...
I tell you: So is it really! SN 22:29Delight is a Mixed and Camouflaged state!
Delight is Craving mixed with & covered by the happiness of satisfaction!
Craving is the cause of Suffering! (So indeed is the 2nd Noble Truth!)
Therefore is Delight also camouflaged suffering! Deadly is Delight!
Why so? Because it makes one seek back for more delight!
This seeking itself is, in the death-moment, the very cause of of rebirth!
When there is birth, there will also be death! Thus: Delight makes Death!
Beings are devoured by delight! Again and again! Decoy Delight!INAPPROPRIATE
Why laugh? Why party?
Always is the world burning!
Why in darkness do you not seek light?
How can you find delight and laughter
Where there is burning without end?
In deepest darkness you are wrapped!
Why do you not seek for the light?Dhammapada 146 THE FRAGILE FRAME
See this painted puppet, one big mass of sores,
a diseased frame of skin drawn upon bones,
once possessing many evil thoughts, a thing much
regarded & beloved, yet of neither stable nor
lasting nature ...
Look at this puppet here, well rigged up,
A heap of many sores, piled up,
Diseased, and full of greediness,
Unstable, and impermanent!Dhammapada 147 ONLY A FORM
This body is worn out, a fragile form, a nest of disease,
a rotting mass of deception since its life surely, always,
and inevitably ends only in Death ...
Devoured by old age is this frame,
A prey to sickness, weak and frail;
To pieces breaks this putrid body,
All life must truly end in death!Dhammapada 148
Blissful is freedom from any sensual urge whatsoever!Udana – Inspiration: II – 1 Comment:
Yes there is pleasure in the world. But it always goes away & turns into pain!
Taking delight means urging back here by rebirth and thus also more deaths!All This - whatsoever - is Suffering: Such is the 1st Noble Truth:http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/II/Th ... fering.htmhttp://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/II/Th ... fering.htmhttp://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/II/Th ... raving.htmhttp://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/IV/So ... ources.htmDevoured by Deadly Decoy Delight!!Blissful is freedom from any sensual urge whatsoever!
